If you guys could critique these vids that would really help me out.
some things i noticed are i rock back onto my heals taking my toes off the ground. I think thats just a stance thing. Also the deeper i go the more my lower back rounds. I know sensai has something about that in his vids so ill go take a look.
The camera makes my knees look a lot more wobbly than they are for some reason.
I posted some vids not too long ago and i see some small improvements in these. I know that i struggled with the 185lbs so depth wasnt the best it could have been. Im hoping next week that will be better.
It looks like you have on running shoes. Go barefoot or get some lifting shoes. Until you really get your form down I would slow down your rep speed. Instead of just dropping down quickly and coming back up take your time and take it one rep at a time. Get as tight as possible (and stay tight threw the entire rep), take your big gulp of air and hold it. Focus on keeping your chest up and your back arched as hard as possible. If you watch the SquatRx vids there is a video that covers the lower back rounding and things you can do to help it. I am still working on that myself. When I get below parallel my back has a slight round. Using a foam roller before I squat has helped a great deal so if you don't have one I would look into picking one up. Good job for trying to make improvements, it will all fall into place just keep it up man..
def. go barefoot. also keep your elbows forward
Looks good to me.
I see improvement from your first vids and your depth seems good to me. Keep up the good work. I'll let the experts critique your form though.
Your form is improving. I think the big thing is to push your hips back before you bend your knees. You do it all at once or bend your knees first depending on the rep. Focus on pushing your hips back and then pushing your knees out when they break. You could get your elbows more under the bar. They should point straight down. Keep at it because you're improving.
Be careful with that bench behind you, you might get in trouble if you fall backward.

Thanks guys, i will continue to work on it with all of your advice.
